Super stuff, many thanks for sharing this, Secret Affair and Merton parkas, If you have any more mod revival love to hear them , The Jolt, The Chords, not 100% sure what mod revival bands did peel Sessions, this Purple Hearts is fantastic.

Funny.. I wasn't a huge, huge fan of MOD revivalist... Well didn't think so but I seem to have a lot of the records of the time.. STAPREST, TEENBEATS, CIRCLES, SQUIRE & probably my favourite BACK TO ZERO who didn't do sessions as far as I know... I believe that THE CHORDS sessions have been officially released but you can hear on VIBRACOBRA23's blog.. Just google VIBRACOBRA23

I was going to load THE QUADS session up from 1979 (although I have yet to put it on my PC) but that can also be found at VIBRACOBRA23

Thanks, yes The Chords session came out on Detour Records a few years ago. I am sure The Quads is already on you tube, but feel free to upload ! I like all the bands above, The Circles were excellent. The old mods never die. Back To Zero, The Teenbeats, Purple Hearts, Squire and the Killermeters all recently played at the Mods mayday 2013 weekender in Cambridge. I'm also a big Billy Bragg fan and like some brit pop. Your site is fantastic. Cheers

Just stuck up the flyer for THE PURPLE HEARTS gig at Vespers the day before the PEEL session if you want it for your MOD blog...
